Why? When musicians pass away people celebrate their lives and their music, when charity workers pass away they celebrate their lives and their charities, and yes they push those charities.

Why is this different?

It's a freakin' funeral and should be celebrated the way the dead person and the family would have wanted it.

Period. It's in incredibly bad taste to be criticizing how somebody that you don't even know chooses to organize their own affairs and ceremony. Tacky as hell.

I think people should say what they think, and if some posters didn't like Ted Kennedy, let them say it.

The former US Ambassador to Ireland (and Bush crony) Richard Egan killed himself a few days ago, incidentally. I guarantee you guys on the left would not be posting asking everyone else respect the wishes of the family, etc, if you wished to post critical things regarding Richard Egan (and I think there is quite a lot to criticise, frankly, though he did great things in business)

Ahhhh yes.....

As much as I disagree with Diamond's post...I plan on many things happening at my funeral Diamond!

I would say that there is the potential for assholes on both sides of the aisle...

Of course its easier to find them on a message board, rather than in the real world....

In the real world...the people in the parties have to work together to accomplish things for the common good...as represented by the Republicans who came to the funeral this weekend.

Or maybe they were the Crazy ones.

Be well everyone!

I've never been one for shutting down threads because of a lack of reverence or what have you.

I do think that it's tacky and kind of low class to be commenting on the readings that a deceased person chose to have at their bloody funeral mass, as if that is anybody's business but theirs and their family's. I happen to think that Bush was a horrid president and a dimwit, but he can structure his funeral whichever way he likes; I don't think that it should be my business to offer a critique of it.

So much for the Left's mantra of separation of church and state.

I stand by my original comment, "wrong arena", and do so without malice and with objectivity.

I know, I know we blow smoke in their faces and they cut our heads off.
And you're upset about the 2nd hand smoke.
Where are my priorities?

Sheesh.

Yeah, praying that everyone has access to healthcare is a political agenda and not at all a component of social justice that, despite their zillion other flaws, the Catholic Church has always advocated for.

Perhaps you've never been to a Mass before; none of that was out of place.
